Wonderful place to stay with my 2 teenage sons! The staff were very polite and the room was clean and comfortable. Pool was beautiful and refreshing. My massage from Eriq Martinez was fabulous-one of the highlights of the trip! Perfect technique-deep tissue but also relaxing, Great hands! Highly recommend if you make it to Costa Rica!

The volcano lodge and spa exceeded all of our expectations. They are very centrally located between La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano. The grounds are beautifully maintained. We really enjoyed spending time on our back patio viewing the wildlife and listening to the rush of water from a nearby stream. It was incredibly relaxing soaking in the hot springs and pool....

Hotel was very clean, staff was friendly and super accommodating. The bar and on site restaurant was fast and inexpensive. Pool and hotel grounds were immaculate. I personally would return without a doubt. thermal waters were very nice and are open very late for a late night dip. View to the volcano is great of course when weather is permitting.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel in June, 2015. The room was extremely nice, far above what I expected. The hidden surprise is the private patio with it's own little hot tub run with the spring water. I would recommend this hotel to everyone, and will definetly go back. The trails at the hotel are beautiful, lots of... More

We stayed for 2 nights and I wish we could've stayed longer! The staff was wonderful and helpful. The rooms were clean and we had a private deck with a view of the volcano. The hot springs so cool. The restaurant was a bit pricey, but they gave huge portions and the food was delicious. It also comes with a... More

We had a wonderful time here! It was so beautiful and relaxing. The surroundings were so peaceful and the pool and hot springs were fun. The staff was very kind and accommodating. We came back to our room with a fresh towel creature each day! Breakfast was buffet style with the most amazing pineapple jelly I've ever had! The Spa... More

This hotel was more like a resort! The photos online don't do justice to the beauty or expanse of the grounds. Everything was super clean and the staff extremely nice and helpful. The pools, jacuzzis, and hot springs, were perfect for us and our nine year old daughter. Over the top happy with our three night stay!

The hotel grounds are beautiful. It is a park like setting with views of Arenal. We stayed in a Thermal Superior Room and it is definitely worth it. Right outside the room is a small private patio with two rocking chairs. Follow a short path to a private thermal hot tub with lounge chairs and a privacy "fence" of bird... More

We love the Volcano Lodge! This was our fifth trip there this year, we love everything about it. The food is terrific, the rooms are nice and well located, and our children love the pools and play area. We love to sit in the hotsprings where we can easily see our children playing in the pool. The gardens are beautiful... More

I cannot say enough good things about this resort. I wish I was more of a techy and could show you some of my pictures. The resort is everything they say and more. The check in was quick and efficient. Including a fruity drink quickly served upon arrival at the front desk. The rooms were clean and fresh. The towel... More
